Helping tell happy stories

Friends of the Baby Unit Derby have been supporting the Derby Neonatal unit, who care for premature and sick babies, for over 40 years. From providing essential equipment like incubators to the unit itself, to providing wellbeing support and guidance to parents.

Helping those who help us

The Friends’ are here to raise funds to buy additional much-needed equipment for the intensive care of babies in the Neonatal Unit at the Royal Derby Hospital.

Since being established in 1976, we have raised just over £2 Million pounds - and we couldn’t have done it without the magnificent support from individuals, companies and organisations that have fundraised for us over the years.

But with the Neonatal Unit caring for over 400 premature babies every year, we continue to need your help.


How you can help us

We’re grateful for any level of support that you can offer to us. We work very hard to support the Neonatal unit in the critical job of saving lives and every penny makes an enormous difference. Here are a few ways you can support us.
